You can extend the life of electrical equipment and make sure it functions properly by performing tests on new equipment, usually after installation and prior to energize. Proper testing by an experienced technician will determine whether the equipment was installed properly and has not been damaged during delivery, that it is in compliance with the specifications, and that it meets its design intent and limit. Plus, the results can be used as a benchmark should a problem occur in the first year of service or throughout a maintenance program.
Before you bring new electrical equipment online, call CHI for the required electrical acceptance testing. We'll perform a thorough examination of your electrical equipment following installation and wiring into your power system. Your insurance company may also require professional electrical acceptance testing before your new electrical equipment is energized to verify that it meets code requirements and satisfies the intent of your application.
According to electrical equipment manufacturers, up to 30% of newly installed electrical equipment fails to operate properly. This can be caused by mishandling, improper installation, or construction debris and dust. You can protect the validity of your manufacturer's warranty through non-biased, independent electrical acceptance testing by CHI Electric professionals.
